Threats to Federal Crop Insurance Loom
 

A deal that was expected to save crop insurance programs from $3 billion in cuts may now be in jeopardy. 

According to the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California have indicated they were not part of the agreement House Ag Committee Chairman Mike Conaway announced at the end of October. 

That agreement was supposed to save crop insurance from the cuts included in the Bipartisan Budget Act at a later time through an omnibus bill. 

The deal appears to have been struck with retired Speaker John Boehner rather than current Speaker Paul Ryan.
